  1. There is room to expand field use within the present school properties. Start with a soccer field at Ridge School. There is plenty of room for it.

    1. There is no room at Ridge…stop beating that drum.

      1. There is plenty of room, and lots of parking.

      2. There is WAY more room there than at little Schedler. Please, serious comments only!

        1. Very true….funny how the RBSA heathens never mention needing a 60×90 field anymore.

          The new field will be 46×60 or 50×70.

          It’s Peewee’s world, we’re just living in it.

  2. Why don’t they use the school fields?

  3. It is not a National Historic Site.

  4. I was over there this morning. It is so lovely trees, birds chirping, a chipmunk running by. What the HELL is this council thinking? Put in a walking path and let it be

    1. 100%

    2. It was purchased OVER 10 YEARS AGO to be developed for “active recreational” purposes. The stonewalling is costing the town a fortune — great work!

    3. Build a baseball field or build condos. We don’t need a tiny park between route 17 and its exit ramp.

  5. Yes, so many of us agree put a walking path in, plant even more trees make it a nature park. A bird sanctuary look at the park they have in Glenrock next to the pool. That place is beautiful nature preserve learning center be creative who the hell wants to bring their kid next to Route 17 and play a sport, do you know how many accidents are over there? Debris, coming off trucks, noise, pollution, How about utilizing other towns? Why should the village always invest in sports groups? It’s amazing how much power clout the sports groups have. It’s been like that for a long time to village. Always bows down to them.. The perfect location is the old Valley Hospital site, that would make a perfect stadium, and it’s just amount of time. I’m just remember people they’re borrowing a lot of money for all this shit who’s going to make it, you don’t have a big department that can handle that are they gonna hire more employees, and who is going to pay for all this one down the road these things need to be replaced , like the turf cost so much money. Just keep raising taxes this moment in time they should stop spending money on fields immediately and just say we don’t have the money for it unless you have big donations like we used to get from Valley Hospital. We need to put aside millions on top of millions for village owned buildings Because we have buildings that need repair .

    1. Jeezus….indent every once in a while….

    2. There is WAY more room there than at little Schedler. Please, serious comments only!

    3. I am a taxpayer too. Create a beautiful baseball field.

      1. To “I am a taxpayer too”
        Why not pour yourself another glass of PFAS Paulie’s special lemonade while you crunch the numbers on how many fields Ridgewood already has, a well known fact to many. Also there is a gorgeous multi purpose field that no one uses right down the road on 17 South It is huge in fact. Never used after school hours or weekends, so right there, it’s a win and it is ready now, so you don’t even need to wait.

  6. Shut this plan down.

  7. Waste of money.

  8. There is WAY more room there than at little Schedler. Please, serious comments only!

    1. You are repeating yourself

      Time to move on. Let’s get the field ready for 2025
